Scary Make-up

Make-up can make or break a horror costume. A little paint or prosthetics can turn your costume from “sorta creepy” to “absolutely terrifying’! Luckily at this convention, you’ve got plenty of opportunities to learn! You can watch live make-up demos as humans are transformed into monsters right in front of your eyes! Or sign up for a make-up workshop and learn to do it yourself!
